Photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto (Japanese, b.1948) is a multi-disciplinary contemporary artist, known for blurring the lines between photography, painting, installation and architecture. To craft his exquisite black-and-white images, Hiroshi Sugimoto uses a 19th-century-style, large-format camera, exploring his idea of photography as a method for preserving and modeling time.

Influenced by Surrealism and Dada, he has often explored the illusory properties of photography which find perfect expression in the famous series of Seascapes (1980– ).
Using long exposures to create eerie scenes with unnatural lighting, Sugimoto transforms the seascapes into images near to total abstractions, which are then coupled with specific geographic titles.
